That's good news... Sprint is still posting losses, but it is a start at
least of turning the ship around. It will take some time, but I am
hoping that Sprint will continue this upward trend and eventually become
a profitable company once again.

Well, they expected to be reporting a loss, a lesser loss than last year, as
they reported in their web conference a couple of months back. One thing ole
Phillipe still doesn't understand, is that SPCS had to build out their
system from scratch 8 years ago, whereas Cingular (Bell South & Pac Bell),
Verizon (formally Bell Atlantic Mobile) & ATTW, already had a hellava lead,
as they already had towers & infrastructure in place with their analog
cellular service.
